The Albert Lowry High School freshman football team had a rough season ending with a record of 1-7. They fought through hardship and injuries. The team played and worked hard on the field, as well as in practice. The team had 23 players playing until the very end.
“The practice was long and hard,” said Alessandro Huerta. “Even when we take a break and do an easy practice we are still going to do a lot of conditioning no matter the weather, place or time”.
The team practiced hard to get where they are today. They have their problems with people getting injured and can not play to not working as well as they would like. They fought through their hardships to get where they were at the end of the season.
“I liked playing with this team and am glad to have played with them,” said Uriah Davis. “We had a rough part throughout the whole session. But we never let that get to us. We keep playing and showing up to the field every day to play the sport that we all loved.”
Three players earned team MVP honors. Uriah Davis got offensive MVP, Juan Mendoza got defensive MVP and Devyn Kennedy got overall MVP.
“I am glad that the coaches picked me to be the MVP of the session, even though I got injured and could not play for part of the session,” said Kennedy. “I was glad to see the team work together.”
The team put their heart out there and played to the best of their ability on and off the field. In the end, the team had fun and are glad that they played this year, and are looking forward to next year to play on the JV team.
